exposure

The videos for each piece are made up of short fragments of footage form three pre-existing films from different film genres (in this case, "Brighton Rock", "The Seachers" and "War Games") that are loosely connected by the ideas of mobs and the sinister. The chosen footage consists exclusively of points of ligature between scenes, or ‘incidental’ moments from the existing films – rarely do we see any actors or ‘scenes’ as such - prompting the audience to try and place the film or conceive their own narrative around what they see; shadows, landscapes and close-ups all add to the elusive nature of what takes place.
